Notes & Reviews:

"John Mark Ainsley is a very fine tenor, especially adept and engaging in English song repertoire. His performances here exemplify technical mastery combined with a natural, confident delivery and knowing, consistently musical interpretation. He's a pure pleasure to listen to... it's Britten's Canticle I that reminds us just how good a song-writer this composer was--and it's especially obvious (and welcome!) coming in the midst of Tippett's tough, craggy creations. You can hear the superiority of Britten's artistry in Ainsley's delivery, in the greater ease with which words and melody flow, and in the perfectly integrated piano writing. This seven and a half minutes is a highlight of the disc." -Classics Today (9/10)
